I purchased this unit to supplement my American Symbols unit, but it could actually be used as a stand alone unit. Another great unit by Deanna.

Hi Deanna,
What software or word processing system do you use to make your worksheets? I love the graphics and "cuteness" but have not figured out what program I should use for all the layering and "drawing" that goes into each page. Your help would be greatly appreciated. (I understand where the clip art comes from, just don't know how to put it all together on one page.)
Thanks!
Renee
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 25, 2013Deanna Jump answered:
Hi Renee, I use Powerpoint and Microsoft Word. To layer the graphics it is really as simple as using the behind text/in front of text option in the Picture Tools. You could google tutorials on how to do this. There are a lot of bloggers who have some great video tutorials for lots of different technology issues. Good luck on TPT!

On  March 20, 2013,  Dawn S. asked:
I love this! I have one question though. On the American Symbols book are you to cut it also, because I folded it like the directions said and it did not look right. The cover opened to the right rather than the left so if you stapled it the book it would staple it shut. Thanks:)
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  March 20, 2013Deanna Jump answered:
You copy the pages one sided them fold it in half. Staple it on the left hand side. This makes the books really durable. My kids put them in,their reading bags and read from them over and over. :)

hi deanna
i bought your amercia pack and it is superb! I thank you for laying out the two weeks that we will study american symbols and presidents. I know i will enjoy teaching it and the kids will really get into learning about their country too.
i noticed when printing the page that has the liberty bell materials list and # 1 and 2 on the directions has the word yolk instead of yoke for the part of the structure that holds the bell. not a monumental issue and surely it doesn't keep me from using anything inside, but i know you would want to know.
thanks for your testimony (i looked for another way to email you but didn't find it so I read your 'about me' again. what a lovely way to share your faith)

Hi! I purchased this great unit, and I love it! Everything looks like it downloaded fine, but when I printed it out, the end border on the "g" mat and then the picture cards for the ending sound sort don't print. Also, then the border on the liberty bell page from the symbols book and the last page of the book do not print. The page that comes from the printer where that page is supposed to be say "PLC XL error / Illegal data value. I thought it was me, so I tried again and got the same result. Maybe you could email these pages seperatley? Or maybe you know a way I can fix it from my end? Thanks! I am excited to use these in my classroom!

Hi There, I know exactly what the problem is. :) you just need to update your pdf program. It's an easy fix and then you won't have anymore printing problems. :) Thanks so much for purchasing my unit. Be sure to visit my blog at www.mrsjumpsclass.com I will be posting some new pics later tonight.

Deanna, I was puzzled by the given arm size (4"X4") when I tried to put the Statue of Liberty together. Could you clarify that? Thanks! Sara
